Retired Navy SEAL Don Shipley BUSTS Phony Navy SEAL James Hoskins of Minster, Ohio.

Part 1 James Hoskins Phony Navy SEAL

Mr. Shipley, thank you for taking my request to verify what I believe to be a fake Navy SEAL.  This guy is posting on Facebook and I am sure other websites saying he was a Navy SEAL and was discharged after a HALO jump gone wrong and is now on disability from it.  He then apparently went to work for Blackwater.

His Name:  James Hoskins
Hometown:  Brookville, Ohio
Current Town:  Minster, Ohio
Age:  Mid 30’s (I believe he graduated from high school in 96)
Phone number (posted on facebook) 937-710-3008
Business Phone: 419-628-6015
Facebook page:
He is the President/CEO of Hoskins International LLC out of Minster Ohio

I greatly appreciate your interest in upholding the honor of the US Navy SEAL Teams, and your search for the TRUTH. Before answering your questions I must make clear that I am a private individual, not affiliated with the US Dept. of Defense or any other government organization. My efforts to expose SEAL imposters are performed as a service to the public, and in honor of my fallen SEAL Teammates... men who truly earned the right to the title "US NAVY SEAL" but who are no longer able to stand forward in defense of their honor, their reputations, and their TEAMs.

If the name you provided is spelled correctly, I do NOT find a listing in the SEAL Database (SEAL Teams, Underwater Demolition Teams and predecessor units from 1943 to the Present Day) for anyone named JAMES HOSKINS. I have also examined possible alternate spellings, and names with similar pronunciations without finding any that appear to be applicable.

Unless he has undertaken the unlikely action of a legal name change (an action for which there would be evidence in the form of court documentation) since his claimed participation in SEAL training, and based upon the information you have provided, I can state conclusively that JAMES HOSKINS NEVER COMPLETED SEAL TRAINING, and he is not now, nor was he ever a Navy SEAL or a Navy Underwater Demolition Team member.

Countless SEAL Imposters show proof of their SEAL claims in the form of SEAL Insignia (Tridents), SEAL Coins, SEAL Award Citations, and SEAL Training Graduation certificates which are unfortunately all available on-line. Numerous others get SEAL Tattoos, Photoshop their faces on SEAL Pictures and alter actual Military Discharge Papers to show SEAL service.

Many SEAL imposters when confronted with the information I have provided will resort to claiming that their records are sealed, burned or their SEAL Operations were classified as Secret and that there are no official records of them. Before any classified operations may be undertaken as a SEAL Operator, a man must first successfully complete the Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL (BUD/S) Training program and then the follow-on secondary training program. The names of all those who successfully graduate from that training program sequence are compiled in the SEAL database. Later participation in classified operations has "NO IMPACT" on whether or not a person is listed as a graduate of the training program.

There are records of every man who has qualified for the title of "SEAL"; there have been and will continue to be secret missions, but there are NO secret SEALs.

While unnecessary, you may want additional confirmation of my findings regarding Mr. JAMES HOSKINS /s lack of SEAL credentials. To do so contact the Public Affairs Office at the NAVAL SPECIAL WARFARE COMMAND in Coronado, California by telephoning (619) 537-1133 or an email to

Thank you again for your concern in this matter, and for your assistance in upholding the honor of the US Navy SEAL Teams. If I can be of any further assistance to you in this matter, please contact me at your convenience.

Respectfully, Don Shipley BUD/S 131, SEAL Team ONE, SEAL Team TWO.

How dare this lumpy sack of shit, cheese dick, mother fucked even utter Luttrell, Murphy or ANYONE from Operation Red Wings name!!!! He doesn't even have a fuckin microscopic particles worth of the honor, courage, and commitment that those men had and that all Seals have!!! The fact that this piece of shit scab uttered and tried to place himself in the same fucking universe as Luttrell and Murphy makes me fucking physically sick!!! I've read all of Luttrells books and he is no bullshit though as God only knows what and Luttrell is 100% my idol I take everything he says in his books to heart and try to mold my life to his principles he is a hell of a man I look up to him!! Same thing with Don that's why I bought this membership I watch his videos listen to everything he has to say and let it sink in these guys: Shipley, Luttrell, Murphy (RIP) and all other Seals are men we need to stop and pay close attention to because when they speak we can learn ALOT!!!! LOVE THE SITE MASTER CHIEF!!!
